In 2012, official statistics for outflows from Latvia totalled 25 200 while inflows were 12 300. In 2013, outflows fell to 22 600 and inflows fell to 8 300. In both years official net migration was thus negative, at ‑11 900. The total resident population at the end of 2013 was 2 million. Since 2000, more than 60% of population decline has been due to net emigration, which was negative throughout the period.
